I need to create a system DSN that links a program to a database (to keep it simple). I've already done this, however I have moved the database location to another computer. It is imperative that I recreate the system DSN with the exact same database name as before. The problem is: even though I've removed the previous dsn, when I go to create the new one it denies me by saying this database name has already been used. Sure enough the database name still exists in the drop-down list of database names in the create databse dialog box. I've checked the ODBC.ini files and manually removed any references to the database name I want to re-use to no avail. How can I re-use (or clear) a previously used database name?
